    We call it nurse. I'm not in the habit of calling my body parts by cutesie names. Although, now my children think that breasts are called nurses.

    DH was on a roll for getting DS's first word to be "milk bags".

    last night DH and DD were playing with a ball and he threw it and hit her in the chest and she said "OUCH! MY MILKS!" I just wonder what her teachers think sometimes

    DS just says milk, although it comes out more like "MUK!!!" I think it's because he still gets breastmilk at daycare, and they always call it "milk." DH and I usually say "mama milk."

    In our house, we refer to it as "nursey" or "milky". DS doesn't have a word for it yet, he just turned 1, but he gets really excited and starts panting and grinning the second he sees me lifting my shirt! We stopped using the word "boobie" a few months ago because I didn't want to deal with a toddler yelling "booby! booby!" while in public. If he starts yelling "milky", most people will just think he's asking for cow's milk.

    I wonder what she does in school they have babies in their play area and when she's around me she nurses and wears the baby.

    Nummies I figure nummies can be lots of things so when she's in the grocery store and screaming nummies, not everyone necessarily has to know that she wants my breast.
